It's not too soon to start thinking about what you'll write in your Christmas letter. I suggest collecting the pictures and stories you want to use and putting them into a folder marked Christmas 2011. You'll be surprised how much easier this will make your work.
When December comes, you'll have events to attend, shopping and decorating to do. And if you are like me, you will be scrambling to get your letter done before Christmas. I have even missed the deadline and given my Yule Log a New Year's theme.
Remember our Christmas letters are one of the great opportunities we have to share the God's love with our families and friends. We can show our love by recognizing accomplishments or special memories made during the year.
Thank you, Lord, for the families and friends You have given us. Help us to shine your love and light in their worlds. Amen.
